Event Details

You can get your license and a hand-held radio all in one day at the Library! Then you can talk across town, around the world, or even into space without the Internet or cell phones. Ham radios can be a lifeline in times of need when regular communications channels fail. At the end of class, an exam team will administer the FCC license exam. Hand-held radios will be available to purchase for $35.

Limited to 30 students. Preregistration is required in person at the Information Desk. You will receive class materials to read and bring with you to class. Registration deadline is Wednesday, January 29, at 8:00 pm.

For adults.
